A while ago I could not find a button I wanted to sew on a garment and thought how great it would be to have a plant where you could just go out and pick the one you wanted…realising that was never going to happen I had the idea to paint some instead!
’Buttons buttons everywhere,
but the one I want is not there!
Blue ones, Black ones, big and small
I cannot see a White one at all.
Sewing box is full to the brim
but the button I want is not within.
